FW: text/enriched sucks (was RE: Java not Fault-tolerant)

What mailer are you using? text/enriched never took off as a standard
and is now universally considered dead because of the (now) obvious
use of MIME encapsulation of HTML (RFC 2110). Of course, the cool way
to use MHTML is to encapsulate it in multipart/alternative after a
text/plain body part so that any RFC 2049-conformant mailer will
display the best format. Which is a long way of saying, <fontfamily>
doesn't look cool.
